HI, i have been an account holder with abbey since aug/sept 2005.i wasnt aware that i could claim back my bank charges until this morning.just started using internet banking when i looked over my last 3 months statements i found that this month i have had 6 bank charges amounting to 140quid, last month 3 charges 90quid.now usually i wouldnt have thought anything of it other than robbing so n so's, but i dread to think how much i have been charged since i have been with the abbey.the charges are for unauthorised overdraft, unpaid & cleared direct debits.am i entitled to claim? i am also worried about the consequences of making a claim.yes i have read the FAQs & i am still unsure how to go about getting started. any help would be greatly recieved.thanks

Hi Hammers,

 

I think that you need to read the FAQ's again!!! as well as other people's threads etc, although it is not a terrible process, it can be a hard slog and you need to be comfortable with what you are doing.

 

There is loads of help on here and people are always around to answer questions.

 

Follow the Step-by-Step's - This is the basic process.

 

And here is the Template Library where all the letter templates are kept...

 

The consequences are... you will get your money back...

 

If you are going to do this I suggest the following:

  1. Read the FAQ's
  2. Read other people's threads
  3. Open an umbrella account
  4. Gather as much information as you can - i.e. for as far back as you have access to, figure out how much they owe you... you will then need to request the rest in the form of the SAR (Step 1)

Good luck... and let us know how you get on :D

;) If I helped, then please click my scales ;)

My advice is only my opinion...

 

Please read the

FAQ's

Hi

 

I hope you get them if not use the DPA template and send £10.00 to ensure they have to provide you with them all.

HI there

 

welcome to Abbeyland!!

 

Have you read the letters in the templates library?

 

You need to send the DPA statement request letter qith a £10.00 cheque.

I have found that this is the only way to get them. You dont normally get them till the 11th hour, like after you have put a claim in.

 

Start sending letters from the library, do copies for yourself and send them track and trace delivery or they will say they are not received.

 

hope this helps
